More is starting to come out about the Bears 2011 schedule if there is in fact a 2011 season.
We already know who they will play. Soldier Field will host the Falcons, Panthers, Seahawks, Chiefs, Chargers and of course the Packers, Vikings and Lions. The Bears will travel to take on the Saints, Bucs, Eagles, Broncos, Raiders and their three division opponents Green Bay, Detroit and Minnesota.
Rumor is the Bears will be opening the season on the road in Green Bay as the now traditional Thursday night kickoff game. So that is 5 preseason games and 1 regular season game within a month.
The second rumor is they might be heading to Jolly Old England to take on the Tampa Bay Bucs sometime in October.
The NFL won't release the full regular season schedule till next week but if both these rumors are true it would seem like the NFC North champs are getting a lot of national TV love from the NFL.
So for all of you out there who travel to see the Bears where do you wanna go? Last year Toronto was invaded by Chicago fans will the same happen to London this season or will New Orleans be the destination of choice. I guess we will just have to wait and see but hopefully this labor deal gets worked out quickly so they don't ruin this upcoming year because I look forward to seeing Da Bears take on this schedule.
